Sacla' Reduced Fat Basil Pesto 190g

This pesto is lower in fat than our Classic Basil Pesto. We’ve made a few clever changes to make it healthier, like cutting back on the oil and salt.

The basil grows where a gentle breeze sweeps across the fields, and of course, the leaves soak up the Mediterranean sunshine. Enjoy our Reduced Fat Basil Pesto with healthy options like smoked salmon, seasonal salads and spiralised vegetables.
